Wolfie had his second lesson today at the lake. He did awesome once again. He did the heels and sit stays and down stays. He did sit stay and down stay off leash as well, and didn't need one correction! There were other dogs walking by along with the usual human traffic, there was a flock of geese that landed close to us, and one dog that ran from it's owner off leash into our area, and he just stayed where he was told, off leash! The trainer brought her dog, and by then end of the lesson we had them laying next to each other so close that they were touching, in a down stay off leash. All in all I was very impressed, and never though that Wolfie could lay still next to another dog. It was funny because the trainer's dog needed a few corrections but not Wolfie. So, after, we finished our walk around the lake back to the car. On the way, we met one of Wolfie's full brothers! That was totally random. They seemed to know each other too. There was lots of kissing, whining, and wagging of tails going on. It was very cute. Now I wish I thought to take a pic with my cell phone.

No they don't look a lot alike. Wolfie looks like his dad ( First pic is Dad) and his brother looks like their older sister Dana ( second pic)

In fact I never realized how much Wolfie and his Dad look alike until I just posted the pictures above! Wolfie is the first picture and Dad is the second picture

That's great that he did so good and that you got to meet his brother. Did they look and act much alike? Sorry I should have read to the end of the thread! I see you answered that already.

I met two of Akiras siblings at the annual puppy day when she was 6 mo old (she was in training to be a guide dog), a M and F. She looked almost identical to the male and acted very similar. The female was very petite and shy, not like Akira at all. She was a lot like her sire and brother.

Wolfie's brother wasn't as calm as Wolfie. Maybe because Wolfie had just finished class and a walk. Did Akiras two siblings seem to recognize each other?

They got along well but I'm not sure if they recognized eachother or not. Her brother and her were very playful, she seemed more outgoing with him than usual.

Her sister was very shy and didn't want to play with them. I don't know if she wasn't socialized enough or if that was just her temperament.

I forgot the funny part of the story. The guy that had Wolfie's brother also had his twin baby boys in a stroller along for the walk. As we were saying goodbye another woman came walking by and said " Are they twins" In unison, both of us said "no they are brothers." She said " I meant the babies!" All of us started laughing.

haha...

I had Dante (puppy) and my son (Connor) in the petstore a week or so ago, and a woman came over and said "awww what's his name" (not looking at Dante)

I said "Connor" and she reached down, patted Dante on the head, and said "Hi Connor."

Sounds like Wolfie is doing better after two lessons
than my Abby is after five lessons. It was not until
sometime around the third lesson before she got the
idea of what it was all about. Sounds like Wolfie took
to it right away.

The private lessons might have been the best thing.
Sometimes things happen for a reason...

I was thinking the same thing about things happening for a reason. How old is Abby? Wolfie just turned 10 months. Maybe age has something to do with him picking things up fast?

Abby will be 6 months next week. As much as she has
changed in the past month I imagine 4 months would
make a big difference.
